Description
One of my Steampunk outfits.Semi formal rig, worn at Travelingman Otaku Attack in Leeds, and the Asylum Steampunk gig in Lincoln.
Black frock coat,and grey cavalry twill unmentionables, made by me. Waistcoat and shirt, charity shop bargains. Cravats, one made from black Hobatai silk worn over a stiffener,the other, coloured one, made from a piece of an old silk sari. Top hat from "Tom Norbury Hatts", boots from a militaria fair (East German Police apparently) blue glasses from my local Magic Shop (yes we have one in Armley). Slung round my neck a WWI (1914) era military compass.
I have an Inverness cape to go with this that, I made some 20 years ago when I made the frock coat, which can be seen worn by Richard in one of the photo's, who I am trying to lure to the Dark Side, (steampunk cosplay, that is).
I am making a new frock coat soon, the old one is not unwearable, but I think I am just that bit wider than I was.

Really smart outfit. I love the waistcoat fabric and that frock coat looks so well made!
